for this region?

 

Tupungato is a wine region in the Uco Valley of Mendoza, Argentina. It’s named after the town, which is surrounded by the high altitude vineyards (the name in local Huarpe means “star viewpoint”). These high locations ensure plenty of sun exposure to ripen the grapes, which benefit from a longer growing season than other locations closer to the valley floor. The Andes mountains shelter the vineyards from precipitation, however melting water that runs from the peaks is the natural source of irrigation. 
 
The dominant grapes cultivated are Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Syrah, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Torrentes.

    Elegant and smooth red fruit notes of raspberry, red currant and black cherry on the nose with candied plum and sweet floral violet aromas.

  • Zuccardi Q Chardonnay Tupungato Valle de Uco 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Fresh citrus notes on the nose with a little cream and some soft acidity. Starts out quite bright in the mouth, with balanced acidity creating some tartness and citrus notes but quite quickly turning creamy/oaky and yeasty towards the finish. Not a ton of other flavors in the profile but it's pleasant and easy to drink. Read More
